However, veteran actor Anupam Kher although, congratulated the director for the achievement, he also slammed him by calling his awards dedication as 'fraudish'.
It is to be mentioned, Haider movie director Vishal Bharadwaj dedicated all the awards to the Kashmiri Pandits genocide saying, "Yes, I dedicate my award to them and I feel very sad because they misunderstood my feelings. I have said it before that the tragedy of Kashmiri Pandits is very big."
However, Anupam Kher who himself is a Kashmiri Pandit called it a fraud act and slammed the Haider director on Twitter with a series of posts.
"While I congratulate Vishal Bhardwaj for National Awards but dedicating them to #KashmiriPandits genocide is such a fraudish thing to do," says Anupam Kher's first tweet.
The second post by Anupam Kher says, "When was last time Vishal Bhardwaj spoke about d plight of #KashmiriPandits? He in fact humiliated us by doing dance of devil at our temple."
The following tweet goes like, "The so called 'Hindu' centric Govt. gave Haider 5 National Awards which many felt was anti-Hindu & anti Indian Army. This is NOT Talibanism."
And the last tweet explains, "My reactions to V Bhardwaj comes from d press con he held after winning National Award & dedicated his award to #KashmiriPandits genocide."
Well, after receiving the awards and all the good words for the movie Haider, these strong words from Anupam Kher certainly won't please Vishal Bharadwaj.
